Hewlett Packard HP 70004a Display With 70950b Optical Spectrum Analyzer
Something was drawing more current than expected 7004a the current-limit protection was tripping. This board is a latter revision than the ones that appear on the schematics but there are not many changes.
I was lucky to have bought a FLUKE D differential voltage probe this year at Friedrichshafen to the nice guy with grey hair and glasses that sells 70004aa Fluke stuff. I built this “adapter” thing as a temporary solution, you too know what that means: The supply operates a high switching frequency and many parts of the circuit are shorted at DC, so I could not find this until I took both transformers out. 770004a paid for itself in just this repair.

Can you tell one from the other? This last one required some improvisation because it is a quad-transistor instead of dual, and the DIP package is very different.
After many hours of testing and probing, and and few components that exploded in the process most times my fault I found there was a transformer with a 14 ohm leak between primary and secondary. I was happy to find it actually worked I used a thin teflon tube and a copper wire to recreate the four turns that form the secondary and guess what, it worked!!
Many suggested changing every capacitor in the board, something I was not going to do, I wanted to find what the fault really was all capacitors turned to be ok:.
This is the beast on the bench, that PCB looks very timidating to me. I bought this cheap A color display as faulty.
I confessed before that I killed a few components on the process, and I could not find replacements for some of them: No surpise, the secondary jacket was burned and touching the primary in one spot:. High voltage, big and the troubleshooting will need to be done live. I could see the power LED flash briefly upon turn-on and then And a final picture of the twin transformers in the working power supply.
Do you see that suspicious potting that squeezed outside the can in one of them?:. Home Projects Music Photo. Knowing I had nothing to loose, I went and opened the transformer can with a Dremel, and removed the resin with hot air and tweezers, carefully to not damage the windings.

There is a current sense resistor and this is what current looked at turn-on try:. You’ll probably want to use an isolation transformer and differential probes, and keep one hand on your pocket at all times. You can see the power supply slowly increasing the current at turn on until it gets too high before it starts regulating the voltage, and quits.
There is no way to check one of the blocks of the power supply alone, you have to give it power and hope for the best.

Could this be fixed? You really need to know what you are doing before probing and testing a thing like this live.
I did not know where to start. The block diagram was invaluable, bp switching power supplies are complex. One day, it refused to turn on.
